Will include higher developer NFC access and supposed support for ‘limited’ peer-to-peer NFC communication.


Just fresh off the announcement of version 2.4 of the Gingerbread line, Google announces version 2.3.3. Evidently the predecessor to version 2.4, this version of the OS is said to feature improved access for developers to the NFC features of phones such as Google’s flagship NFC.

To be specific, the new update features the new NFC read/write API which, according to Google, will enable users to access almost all NFC tags in the market and will supposedly support ‘limited’ peer-to-peer NFC communication. The update is available to developers on the Android SDK.

Though no devices have the update yet, it’s a safe bet to assume that the Nexus S will be first in line to get this new update.
